Maya Vander welcomes rainbow baby

Maya announced the birth of her rainbow baby girl, named Emma Reign, after she experienced a pregnancy loss in December 2021 and a miscarriage in 2022.

“Welcome to the world Emma Reign! My rainbow baby!” the Netflix star captioned the post. “This was a long 9 months as I kept my pregnancy as quiet as possible from social media. I gave birth a few days ago and words can not express my sense of relief and happiness!”

The Selling Sunset star went on to thank the healthcare professionals and the hospital for the delivery and revealed that she had to wear a mask due to a cold.

“I’m wearing a mask because of course I had the [worst] cold but I made it to push a baby with a full stuffy nose,” she added in the post.

Emma is Maya and David’s third child as they are already parents to son Aiden, 4, and daughter Elle, 2.

Maya opened up about her stillbirth

In July 2021, the real estate agent confirmed that she was pregnant with her third child but revealed that she had lost the baby in December of the same year.

She had a regular check-up at 38 weeks when she received the heartbreaking news. Days after the baby stopped moving, Maya visited the hospital but doctors were unable to find a heartbeat.

In 2022, Maya sadly confirmed that she’d suffered a miscarriage at 10 weeks. At the time, she announced the news on her Instagram and sent “love to the women who experience pregnancy loss”.
